"Big Shiny Limo" is big, booming, noisy garage rock with burning riffs, sarcastic vocals and the throbbing rhythm section. It's pretty good stuff. They kick into a fat groove three minutes into it, flashing their stoner rock credentials along the way. "All Units are Out" is a slow stoner groove with noisy, crashing drums and fuzzed out guitars. The vocals have little emotion to them, although the band eventually kicks into a fat stoner groove with thick riffs, pushing along for an emotional lift.
"Anchorage & Quito" begins with fuzzy riffs and the throbbing rhythm section right away. The vocals have a lot of emotion and charisma to them. They jam for a long time in their burning stoner groove, keeping your attention in check. "All Good Things (Must Come to an End)" begins in a fat, fuzzy groove with thick, heavy low end fuzz, soon joined by slow burn guitar riffs. The vocals join in as they continue to push along in their chunky groove. It's excellent stuff, getting a bit progressive during the part where a solo would be.
"Dumdum Bullet" begins with fuzzy basslines, grating riffs, and thundering drumming. The vocals join in as they hammer away with speed and lots of energy. It's excellent stuff, sounding similar to 70's rock. "Firebug" begins with more fuzz and funk as fuzzy riffs, the laid back rhythm section, and semi-melodic vocals begin the jam. It's catchy and memorable, a well put-together song.
I am impressed by Generous Maria's talent and their ability to write good music.
Pit Grade: 7.5 out of 10, Command indeed.
